Do your walls seem to be paper-thin when it comes to sounds that travel through them? Are your energy bills higher than you would expect, even though you have done your best to limit your energy usage? If your answer to either of these questions was affirmative, you may want to consider assessing the insulation that is currently in your home.
When you have our insulation contractors come out to assess your home’s insulation, we will look at the insulation that already exists and give you a free estimate regarding options that will provide you with better insulation protection. If your home is older, it may have been built without proper insulation. This is particularly true for homes that were built prior to 1940, as many of them were built without insulation. While you may think that it’s time to simply tear down the house and start over again, a more cost-effective solution is blow-in insulation installation.
The nice thing about blow-in insulation installation is that it can be used in hard to reach spaces, nooks, crannies, attics and crawl spaces. This is because it is composed of loose chunks of insulation, rather than insulation that comes on a roll. Typically, blow-in insulation is made from fiberglass, which makes it an effective insulator. Because it is in pieces, instead of on a roll, blow-in insulation is an excellent choice for filling gaps and getting rid of air pockets. Due to the nature of this insulation, combined with the installation process, blow-in insulation installation can be completed quickly and with very little disturbance to your regular routine.
When you install blow-in insulation, you will be pleased to find that your home is quieter, and more comfortable. This is due to the fact that the insulation now blocks the transfer of heat and noise from the exterior of your home to the interior.
